Thread Name: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP (1940-2011)
Subject: RE: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP
A marvelous singer, and a joy to know - the world has lost a beautiful person. I first met her at Mariposa in the 70's, and had to priviledge of driving her to a number of appearances in NY - Pennsylvania.
She was a gracious and generous host when I visited the UK in
the early 1980's. Heard her again during an assignment to England
in the late 1980's. Her increasingly rare US appearances were
always a "must go" event.
A mixture of sadness at our loss, delightful memories of her,
and the hope she is now at peace after such a long and devastating
illness.
Heartfelt condolences to Colin and their children, her siblings, and
many admirers.
She will live on in our memories, and her too few recordings.
I will post s discography shortly.
with a heavy heart, Thomas.
